Jamey, the Dog of the Day
Name: Jamey
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male Breed: Greyhound
Home: Calgary, Alberta, Canada
   My name is Jamey (formerly King James) and I was recently adopted by my new family. I travelled a long way to get to my new home, first by car and then by plane. When I arrived I was greeted by two Labradors. My new Mommy says they are my "sisters", whatever that is. When I went inside my new house for the first time I saw four cats. I'm OK with kitties so I ignored them. They have become my friends because they sleep with me in my bed and keep me nice and warm. I really enjoy all the loving I get from my new family, so I think I'll stay here.

    Jamey is a retired racing Greyhound and he was adopted this summer. He came from Ohio, so he really did have a very long journey to get here. In the few short months since his arrival he has realized that he really enjoys retired life. He loves lounging around in the sunny back yard, on the love seat, and on his beds. He loves his daily walks and is interested in everything new that he sees. It is like he is discovering "life" for the first time. Although he still has a lot to learn about being a pet, he is a good dog, and he is a joy to have around. I hope to have him around for a long time.
